We have come to agree that the impact of one’s life is not measured by longevity but by the impact made and the number of lives positively influenced over a lifetime. Africa today, by all accounts, faces a fierce urgency of now. This urgency is evident in the need for upward social mobility, for inclusiveness, equitable growth and healthy lives.
In our native Cameroon, while some progress has been made, we still have 95 out of every 1000 children dying before their 1st birthday; we still have a maternal mortality rate ranked 9th in the world. In this country of ours, we still unfortunately experience recurrent outbreaks of cholera, continued degradation of the health system and an economy that for the most part has been struggling for the last two decades with inflation rising faster than growth in real GDP per capita.
